UBC myVPN Service NoticePosted July 22, 2015
Microsoft will be releasing Windows 10 on July 29, 2015 which will affect myVPN clients. The current software client only supports Windows 8. Anyone upgrading may try enabling backward compatibility features to retain VPN remote access ability (UBC IT will verify this workaround when Windows 10 becomes available). In order to support Windows 10 clients, a significant software upgrade is required to the myVPN service and is planned for Fall 2015.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection uses encryption to protect data and prevent others from listening-in on the data that is transferred between your computer and the campus network.
UBC Information Technology offers free VPN services to UBC students, faculty, and staff at both the Vancouver and Okanagan campus.
